P0128 Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature) Detailed Description
Indicates that the thermostat monitor has not achieved the required engine operating temperature within a specified amount of time after starting the engine.
Possible causes : -
Insufficient warm up time

WE FIND IT VERY COMMON FOR THE THERMOSTAT TO BE AT FAULT
